Hi,


That's a Money Tree. Not technically a bonsai, as it doesn't really adhere to typically bonsai techniques. It does make a nice houseplant though.

can a money tree be trained to do things or be made to 'bonsai'??? I own one and want to do something to it,.

Not really. They don't really branch like a good candidate would, and they leaves don't really reduce much, if at all.

"But my leaves are starting to turn brown, like see through brown. And real soft..... why :(?"

Poor soil, too much water, too little water, not enough light... Any multitude of reasons.
I assume the plant is still in its original pot, with its original "soil"?

After reading your comment went and switched its soil.... what it had as its soil was flipping coconut fiber :(

Its been almost an entire day and it seems like the leaves arent as droopy already!
